I was wondering if I could come up with a quick way to describe my impressions; the best I can come up with: It’s like Apple is trying to borrow from the Android operating systems, but it’s also like they took one of the worst Android interfaces and left out the ability to customize it properly.
I take issue with the definition of “digital copy” and write my first post complaining about a Digital Rights Management method. UltraViolet Digital Copy is a streaming format that’s replacing the iTunes/Windows Media Player importable version of digital copies on some combo packages that include a “Digital Copy” along with the usual disc.
So I broke down and spent money on the iPad 2. After a very long wait, it finally arrived this past Thursday. Here’s what I think so far. Be warned: this post starts out quite negative about the device … but ends on the good notes.
